A Campbellsville woman has been arrested and charged with stealing from someone else's home.

Tricia Goins, 42, of 219 Eads St., was arrested Saturday, May 10, at about 8 p.m.

According to court records, Campbellsville Police Officer Scotty Perian responded to a complaint of someone stealing copper wire inside a home at 226 Eads St.

Upon arrival, Perian made contact with a woman inside the home, identified as Goins, who had a screwdriver in her hands and white dust on her arms and clothes. Perian wrote in court records that he saw several holes in the walls of the home where drywall had been broken and wires and plugs removed.

Goins told Perian, records state, that she was taking items from the house to her home. She said she was going to take a small cabinet from the home and had already moved a kitchen table, entertainment center, dressers and end tables to her home. Those items were found at her home, records state, and returned.

Goins told Perian, records state, that she knew she didn't have permission to be at the other home.

Goins was charged with second-degree burglary, a Class C felony punishable by as much as 10 years in prison, and third-degree criminal mischief, a misdemeanor offense.

She pleaded not guilty to the charges in Taylor District Court on Monday, May 12. Bond was set at 10 percent of $3,000 and Goins was appointed a public defender. She was ordered to not consume any drugs or alcohol.

Goins is expected to appear in court again on Wednesday.
